Letters to Abigail at TFAC Sept. 21

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, September 17, 2014


Appalachian/Americana band Letters to Abigail will perform Sunday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m in the Peterson Amphitheater at Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC).

Beginning as a duo with James Harrell (vocals, guitar) and Kellie “Mae” Redmond (vocals), Letters to Abigail soon added Lauren Bandy on upright bass bringing depth and a percussive sound. The soulful music of the Western North Carolina trio is described by some as a “simple southern pleasure.” Digging down into the roots of the region, they blend a classic country with Americana/Folk and a slight touch of Blues. Their original sound is drenched in powerful lyrics, acoustic melodies and soulful harmonies.

Letters to Abigail released their debut CD, “Say Anything” in July 2013. Bold Life Magazine says of the CD, “all [their] blood, sweat and tears is abundantly evident on Say Anything. It shines through in a way which your ears can definitely appreciate, but more importantly, which your heart can undeniably feel.”

The program will move indoors in case of rain. Please leave dogs and coolers at home. Admission is by donation at the door. Letters to Abigail is the second presentation of TFAC’s fall 2014 season in the Peterson Amphitheater.
